    Hello all!

    I have a problem with my dock is OS 10.4... The finder icon is missing and I don't know how to get it back. I don't know what I did and I know that it is not needed but I would like to have it there. I may be over looking something but if any body out there can help, i would like it!

    go to force quit, then a tiny window pops up, see if it says you can relaunch finder( if so try that)

    Restart or log out. Everything should be fine then.

    Try opening System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app and see if it re-appears in your Dock.

    And/or do the usual... repair permissions, etc.

    I had the finder icon jump out of the dock onto the desktop once :D I fixed it by logging out, and back in again :)

    Doing a finder relaunch could work just as well though
